The obverse side of the 2022 American Silver Eagle Coin continues the Type 2 design of the previous year, featuring the Walking Liberty design from Adolph A. Weinman. This design was first developed in 1916. The image shows Liberty in left-profile relief walking toward the sun on the horizon. Beneath the “TR” in the inscription of “In God We Trust” is where you will find Weinman’s signature mark consisting of his “AW” initials.
The new reverse design shows a bald eagle flying now in a more life like design. The beautiful wings are visible with incredible detail and stunning accuracy, as the eagle holds a large oak branch in its talons, which is the national tree of the united states. In addition, the new coin contains enhanced security features, liked reeded edges. The eagle is surrounded by inscriptions including the country, weight, purity, denomination, and the US motto “E Pluribus Unum”.
